Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

Pontypool Changes Everything

Altered Carbon - Richard K. Morgan A marvelous first novel. This review said "If [[author:Michael Connelly]] had put Detective Bosch in space (and cyberspace) he may have ended up with something like Altered Carbon (if he is lucky)", which was a significant selling feature for me, and it lived up to its billing.

On top of an excellent mystery, great action, and fascinating characters, Morgan takes a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at both interstellar empire and the nature of "self".
